MINNEAPOLIS (March 9, 2018) –Deluxe Corporation, a growth engine for small businesses and financial institutions, has selected Nina Hale as its paid media agency partner to promote the company’s Small Business Revolution initiative. The performance digital agency will be handling digital strategy, analytics, and paid media management to help Deluxe drive awareness and viewership for its acclaimed original series, Small Business Revolution – Main Street.
Nina Hale was awarded the business after an extensive request for proposal (RFP) process, which encompassed multiple rounds of proposals and an in-person presentation. The agency’s strategic planning, thorough research, and attention to the nuances of Deluxe’s business ultimately helped to win the account.
“From the beginning of the RFP process, through the final pitch, it was clear how much thought went into the materials Nina Hale provided. The team was well orchestrated and the recommendations made were thoroughly researched and artfully presented,” said Ashley Kimlinger, Director of Enterprise Brand Management at Deluxe. “Ultimately we could tell that these were people who would be good partners. Who would truly care about our business and invest themselves in our campaign. People we could trust and who would get in the trenches with us.”
Originally launched in 2015 to celebrate its 100th anniversary, Deluxe created and Small Business Revolution to shine a spotlight on the small businesses that drive the American economy. Deluxe’s Small Business Revolution champions small businesses and the impact they have on their communities. In 2016, Deluxe extended the campaign into an original series that now stars Amanda Brinkman, Deluxe’s chief brand officer, and features how Deluxe’s small business products and services helps to revitalize the Main Street of one small town. In 2018, television personality Ty Pennington joined the show.
“We are proud to have been selected to support Deluxe’s Small Business Revolution as it continues to grow and evolve,” said Nina Hale’s CEO, Donna Robinson. “Our teams are already aligned on the strategy and goals of the next phase of the campaign.”
The focus of Nina Hale’s effort will be on driving viewership of Small Business Revolution – Main Street’s upcoming third season, set to launch in October 2018. Like the previous two seasons, the show will be available for streaming on both Hulu and Deluxe.com. Deluxe will also look to Nina Hale to help convert small business owners that stream the original content into prospects for the company’s suite of small business services.
